In Michigan There Are ZERO Requirements To Be A Home Inspector! No education or training necessary you don't even need insurance. What does this mean for you? It means with no regulations your family doctor, car mechanic or even your own child can be a residential or commercial property inspector. They can do this without any prior knowledge about foundations or inner workings of what make up a house such as the plumbing, electrical, HVAC systems and recognizing potential mold, lead, or asbestos.

The last thing a customer who just bought a home wants to discover shortly after buying their home; outlets that don't work, clogged pipes, a leaky roof or cracked foundation, overlooked by an unqualified inspector. Jobs like these can range in cost from less than a hundred to a few thousand depending on severity. We understand that buying a home is costly and while home owners anticipate a few issues, many get more than they bargained for.
An inspector is not there to make the decision regarding wether or not you should purchase a property or to determine the value of the property. An inspector's job to make you aware of the state of the home or building you are considering buying, and to assist you in being more informed before making your decision. While home inspections seem negative most often its because its viewed as the inspector telling you only the things wrong, but a good inspection tells you the positive qualities as well. Inspections are intended to keep buyers informed and sellers honest, but can also inform sellers of potential concerns to make repairs before beginning the process of listing ensuring they make the most of their investment.
